The story is about a first year high school student, Komi Shouko, who is a beautiful girl who everyone looks up to, but her face freezes up when she tries to talk to other people because of her extreme communicable disease, and she struggles to achieve her goal of “making 100 friends”.
Along with the decision to make an anime adaptation, a teaser visual, a teaser PV, and information on the main cast and staff have been released.
Koga Aoi will be playing the role of Komi Shouko, Kajiwara Gakuto will be playing the role of Tadano Hitohito, and Murakawa Rie will be playing the role of Osana Najimi, Ayumi Watanabe of "Koi wa Ameagari no Yoni" will be the general director, Issei Kawagoe of "Bungo to Alchemist: Gears of Judgement" will be the director, and the series composition will be Akao Deko of "I shaved. And then I brought a high school girl home."; character design by Nakajima Atsuko of "Tokyo Ghoul: re"; and animation production by O.L.M.
"Komi can’t communicate” will start airing on TV Tokyo and other stations in October 2021.
In addition, a campaign is currently underway on the official Twitter page, where three winners will be chosen by lottery to receive a reproduction of the congratulatory illustration by the original author, Oda Tomohito.
Komi Shouko (CV. Koga Aoi)
Komi can’t communicate.
She looks like a beautiful girl that everyone turns to, but she finds it extremely difficult to communicate and when she tries to talk to others, her face freezes up with nervousness and she thinks about how to talk to them and what to do afterwards. But the truth is, she wants to talk to people. Her dream is to “make 100 friends”.
Q1: What was your impression of this work?
First of all, when I picked up the book, I saw the title and the cover picture and thought, "Oh, there's something about this girl." The cover alone had an impact that piqued my interest.
The title, ""Komi can’t communicate," I thought it was interesting that there was a catchphrase which made it easy to understand what kind of girl the character was. I could relate to the realism of the situations that many of us experienced during our school days, and I found myself reading on and on.
There are a lot of characters with strong "personalities" in this work, the parts that I tend to think negatively about, or that I don't want people to see or know about, are portrayed as positive.
I thought it was a work that made me think, "Maybe I can accept this kind of me..." and gave me the courage to push those who are troubled.
Q2: What is your impression of the character you play and how enthusiastic are you about the role?
From the side, she is a cool, beautiful woman who everyone admires. However, in reality, she is not very good at communicating, and when people talk to her, she scares them even though she never meant to. She was confused, and even though she really wanted to get along with them, she couldn't get the words out. The more I got to know her, the more I felt that way, and the more I fell in love with her. (laughs)
I will do my best to portray her moving forward slowly but firmly, step by step, and to convey her thoughts and warmth in a few words.
Tadano Hitohito (CV. Kajiwara Gakuto)
Tadano-kun is just a person.
His goal is to read the atmosphere around him so that his "normal" self doesn't stand out in the class, and to live his high school life without any disturbance. However, he seems to be very good at understanding people's feelings, and sees that Komi can’t communicate, so he becomes her "first friend.
Q1: What is your impression of this film?
Komi is really adorable... as I read the original story I'm always struck by how she gradually expresses her emotions even though she's clumsy! In addition to Komi, all the other characters have distinct personalities, which reminds me of my own high school days, and I can't help but fantasize about how happy my student life would be if I had such friends around me... (laughs) I especially like seeing them at seasonal school events, festivals, and other events, and I can't help but cry as I read them, thinking about my school days that I can't go back to...! And personally, the covers are always too beautiful! I'm so impressed! Thank you so much, Oda-sensei!
Q2: What is your impression of the character you are going to play and what is your enthusiasm for the role?
I think that Hitohito is a boy who has the goodness of being normal! He was a little naughty in junior high school, but once he sees it objectively, he becomes normal. It reminds me of my own school days. (laughs) I actually once tried to be a little naughty, but then I realized how naughty I was and went back to normal, so I felt sympathy for him while reading! But I'm very communicative myself, so I admire people who treat me like a normal person like Hitohito-kun.
Every time I read it, I fall in love with it, so I'll do my best to play it charmingly!
Osana Najimi (CV. Murakawa Rie)
Osana Najimi is familiar.
She is Tadano-kun's childhood friend. Or rather, she is a childhood friend to everyone. Her communication skills are so high that she can get along with anyone in a matter of minutes, but she seems to have a hard time with Komi because of their "past relationship". She usually wears a skirt and dresses as a "female student," but she used to wear a school run and dress as a "male student" until middle school. Her gender is no longer known.
Q1: What is your impression of this work?
As I was cackling and laughing at the funny gags, I felt that one of the appealing aspects of the film was that it depicted human relationships in such a way that tears of laughter turned into tears of emotion, and that these human relationships were carefully drawn. I think we all want to watch Komi achieve her dreams, but I also think there is a real pleasure in watching her grow up.
Q2: What is your impression of the character you are going to play and what is your enthusiasm for the role?
I will be playing the role of Osana Najimi, a strong character with special abilities who has a mysterious side but also possesses tremendous communication skills. Although she is such a strong character, she fits in so well with everyone that she is everyone's childhood friend, so I hope I can bring out the best of her. I haven't recorded yet, so I don't know how it will turn out, but I'm very happy to be involved in "Komi can’t communicate.” I'll do my best so that everyone can enjoy it!

“Tonari no Young Jump", where the new manga is distributed, is a webcomic distribution site by the editorial department of "Weekly Young Jump". Under the theme of "proposing encounters with characters that you want to have next to you when you're taking a moment to relax or when you've had a bad day," the site offers manga works completely free of charge and without registration. Currently, "One Punch Man," which is also popular in anime, is being serialized.
Ishida Sui, the author of the manga "Tokyo Ghoul" and the game "Jack Jeanne" (original story, character design, scenario), has announced a new serialization. The title is "Choujin X", and it will be about a battle action series with "superheroes".
On his Twitter page, he wrote, "I'd like to draw the backgrounds and finishes of this work by myself, so updates will be at a slow pace, but I hope it will be a companion for you in your spare time. Thank you for reading it”.
The first issue of the new manga "Superhero X" is now available on the webcomic site "Tonari no Young Jump".
P.A.WORKS' completely new original anime "Aquatope of White Sand" will be broadcast on TOKYO MX, BS Fuji, MBS, and Ryukyu Broadcasting from July 8, 2021.
Also, the second key visual was released, and the cast of additional characters, Tsuchiya Shinba, Azakami Yohei, and Yanaka Hiroshi, was also announced. In addition, U35, the original character designer, sent us a comment and a newly drawn illustration.
“Aquatope in the White Sand" is a completely new original anime directed by Shinohara Toshiya, with series composition by Kakihara Yuko and production by P.A.WORKS, the same team that worked on "Iroduku the World in Colors".
Set in a small aquarium in Okinawa, the story depicts the dreams and reality, loneliness and companionship, bonds and conflicts of the girls, starting with the encounter between Misakino Kukuru, an 18-year-old high school girl working there, and Miyazawa Fuuka, a former idol who escaped from Tokyo.
The second key visual that was released along with the decision of the broadcast start date depicts characters involved in the "Gamagama Aquarium," including Misakino Kukuru, who is smiling as she holds a penguin in front of a large round tank, and Miyazawa Fuuka.
The visuals of the additional characters and their cast, Tsuchiya Shinba, Azakami Yohei, and Yanaka Hiroshi, were also revealed.
Tsuchiya-san will be playing the role of Nakamura Kai, a childhood friend of Kukuru's and the son of a fisherman, Azakami-san will be playing the role of Yakamashi Kuuya, a keeper at the "Gamagama Aquarium" who looks blunt but is serious at heart, and Yanaka-san will be playing the role of Kukuru's grandfather and the director of the "Gamagama Aquarium", Grandpa.
We also received comments from Tsuchiya-san, Azakami-san, Yanaka-san, and U35, the original character designer who sent in the illustration papers depicting Kai and Kuuya.
“Aquatope in the White Sand" will be broadcast on TOKYO MX, BS Fuji, MBS and Ryukyu Broadcasting Corporation from July 8, 2021.
Tsuchiya Shinba (Nakamura Kai)
Q1: What is your impression of this film?
Every time I've seen Shinohara-san's films, I've been gripped and moved by a world that is rich in color, freshness, vitality, and the subtleties of the heart. On top of that, this time, the story is set in the fascinating city of Nanjo in Okinawa, and it takes place in an aquarium. Just imagining how much power will be infused into the images is enough to make my heart skip a beat. I'm looking forward to the drama of the people portrayed, as well as the cuteness and movement of the various lives that live in the water!
Q2: Could you give us your impression of the character you will play and your enthusiasm for the role?
The character I play, Kai, is a healthy boy who always thinks hard about what he can do for his childhood friend, Kukuru, and cares for her. As the son of a fisherman, he has a toughness that he has cultivated, and I think his simple atmosphere is very attractive. When I played the role of Kai, I tried to be as natural as possible. I wanted to express the gentle and unpretentious character who grew up surrounded by nature in a straightforward manner through the way he breathes and spins his words.
Azakami Yohei (as Yakamashi Kuuya)
Q1: What is your impression of this film?
I had the impression that the story was progressing slowly, really slowly. When I received the script, I wondered what the picture would be like when I saw that there were many cuts without any characters or dialogue. Today, we are very busy. This is a work that should be seen now, when our minds tend to be tired due to various reasons.
Q2: Could you give us your impression of the character you will play and your enthusiasm for the role?
Kuuya is a young man who has been traumatized by something that happened to him, but he has more love for living things and more passion for his work than anyone else. He has a surprisingly cool side, but I try to play a young man who is often misunderstood. I would like to cherish the "charm" of the character that can only be understood through slow and careful involvement.
Yanaka Hiroshi (as Grandpa)
Q1: Could you give us your impression of this film?
When I was a child, there were small, brightly colored fish swimming in a small aquarium at home.
When I came of age, there were fish in Tokyo and Osaka, swimming lively in huge tanks.
Now, on the screen in front of me, a variety of sea creatures emerge in the vivid colors of Okinawa.
The young characters grow up in contact with the aquarium space and marine life.
The warm and gentle Okinawan heart envelops them.
It's amazing to be able to witness such a happy production!
Q2: Could you give us your impressions of the characters you play and your enthusiasm for the role?
“Grandpa" watches over the unique characters and sea creatures with his gentle eyes and Okinawan heart.
My heart trembled at the thought of what a wonderful person he is.
I tried to play such a profound character carefully without being too overbearing.
However, in order to put my thoughts and feelings into the Okinawan language, I had to sweat every time I recorded the scene while learning how to speak in detail from my co-star Gibu Yuuko.
As a member of the audience as well, I'm looking forward to seeing what will happen in the future, and I hope to play the role of the wonderful "grandpa" to the fullest.
Original character design: U35
Kai-kun is the son of a fisherman who also helps out, so I tried to give him a strong arm and a good amount of strength.
I would be happy if I could create an atmosphere that shows both masculinity and kindness, while keeping the image of a man of the sea.
Kuuya may look like a flirt, but he does his job well. I designed him with long bangs, hoping that it would create a curtain that would allow him to avoid eye contact with women who are not his strong point.
Although they are different in age, I think they make a great pair.

Even if you think you are unhappy, unlucky, or that this place is hell, from the perspective of those around you, it may be heaven. The opposite is also true.
